Virginia's governor just signed into law additional bureaucratic red tape that restricts freedom and forces big government to get between a patient and her doctor, while calling it "empowering" for women.
If politicians want to save the lives of innocent children, there are simple ways to do so: for example, by providing women with decent health care and education. Instead, Governor McDonnell ha...s magnanimously cut health and education funding during every one of his years in office.
If politicians are willing to take steps that have been demonstrated to actually save lives, then we can take them seriously when they talk about values and abortion, which is a difficult issue. If they are unwilling to take such steps, then we can and should dismiss such lies with the contempt they deserve.
